I'm still here!

I haven't posted in a while because our lives here went topsy-turvy for a couple of weeks! 
My husband lost his mother rather quickly and unexpectedly. 
We had a couple of weeks of hospitals and relatives and a funeral. 
We had the boys back and forth from college twice in a week and in the middle of all of that,
my brother, who is our very close to our family and our parish priest, 
was yanked out of our parish and transferred to another town. 
I was not ready for all of this, but I don't think this is something you can be ready for.
Life goes on.
So my great plans for releasing 3 new patterns have gone astray. I am chasing them down as we speak! LOL!
In the middle of all of this it was applesauce making time. This was actually a blessing, something to concentrate on while waiting for the funeral to happen.
My sister in law and I put up a few quarts.
I made some more yesterday, and some applebutter,
which turned out delicious!
I hope to be back at the end of the week with some new patterns. It is great to get back to work, which lucky for me is really play!
